MAINTENANCE DATA SYSTEM
The Maintenance Data System (MDS) provides a
means of recording maintenance actions, processing the
recorded data to define important facts about
maintenance and equipment, and retrieving information
for analysis. Significant data identified by the system
include the reason the malfunction occurred, how it was
discovered, manhours used in correcting the problem,
exact equipment affected, delays in repair and reasons
for delays, and types of maintenance personnel required.
Maintenance personnel document certain shipboard
maintenance actions and corrective maintenance on
specific categories of equipment at the time they
actually perform or defer the maintenance action.
Information is recorded and put into the MDS using
OPNAV Form 4790/2K, Ships Maintenance Action.
